- Story Text:After celebrating the start of 2019, thousands of people gathered in central Berlin on Wednesday (January 1) to welcome the New Year on a healthy note by taking part in the annual New Year's Day run.
The 49th edition of the event began at the landmark Brandenburg Gate and continued down the famous boulevard Unter den Linden to the city's cathedral and back again.
Many people traded in the traditional New Year's Day hangover by getting into the spirit of their fitness resolutions, wearing masks, costumes and bright vibrant colours.
The route is an easy six kilometres, welcoming families with children to the event.
